Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir bison and pork in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Add onion and garlic; cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Stir in tomato sauce, tomato paste, salsa, water, peri-peri sauce, and Italian seasoning. Reduce heat to low and simmer meat sauce, stirring occasionally, until thickened and flavorful, about 1 hour.

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Put frozen spinach in a microwave-safe bowl. Cook in the microwave until steaming and no water is left in the bowl, 5 to 7 minutes. Let cool; stir in cottage cheese.

  • Spread a thin layer of meat sauce in the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking pan. Add a layer of noodles, another layer of meat sauce, and another layer of noodles. Top with all of the spinach-cheese mixture, another layer of noodles, the remaining meat sauce, and the shredded Italian cheese blend. Cover pan with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. Uncover and continue baking until cheese is browned and bubbly, about 15 minutes more. Let stand 20 minutes before cutting.
